Easy Orange Chicken Recipe (Better Than Panda Express!)


I admit it. I’m addicted to the Orange Chicken from Panda Express and it’s literally the first place I visit when I visit America. Since I can’t visit on a regular basis, I decided to try and replicate it at home. Subscribe for more videos! http://goo.gl/18SB8p

INGREDIENTS:
1 lb/400 g chicken thigh or breast
1 orange
2 cloves garlic
1 stub ginger
chili pepper
1 egg white
2/3 tsp salt
pepper to taste
1/2(50g) cup cornstarch
1/2(55g) cup flour
1/2(100ml) cup shaoying rice wine (you can use white wine or omit this ingredient completely if you want)
1/2(100ml) cup soy sauce
1/2(100ml) cup vinegar
2 tbsp cornstarch
2 tbsp sesame oil
4 tbsp honey

DIRECTIONS:
Wash and dry orange. Zest your orange and save the zest for later. Juice the orange and set aside. Grate garlic and ginger. Chop the chilis. Cut chicken into bite-sized pieces and place into a bowl. Put one egg white into the bowl along with the salt and pepper and give it a quick massage. Add cornstarch and flour and once again, mix it with your hands until chicken is evenly coated. Deep fry in hot oil (350 F/175C) for 4-5 minutes until crispy and golden brown. Drain on paper towels and set aside.

For the sauce, combine shaoxing wine, soy sauce, orange, ginger, garlic, chili and vinegar. Heat until boiling then turn to low. Add cornstarch slurry (cornstarch & water) and cook on medium heat until sauce thickens. Add honey and mix well. Add the chicken and a drizzle of sesame oil and mix to coat the chicken. Serve with hot rice.

  1. WOW – looks way better than Panda Express. I also like to make Lemon Chicken! You might try that some time to taste at least. It also has a sweetness but of course with the taste of lemon. Please keep up the great videos!

  2. That looks sooooooooo yummy!!! I could almost smell it while watching the video…. thank you for sharing!

  3. If I use chili pepper flakes (like you would put on pizza) instead of chopping peppers, is that close to the same thing?

  4. Turned out awesome but definitely… different it is semi-sweet but my husband hates sweet food and loved this dish so it was a win for both of us! Thanks for the video!

  5. OH SWEEEEET JUDY BLUE EYES !!  You guys are good!   I can just taste how good this is.  Very nice indeed !!  Good job.
